Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people around the world. It is characterised by red, scaly patches on the skin that can be itchy and painful. While there is no known cure for psoriasis, there are many treatments available that can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
One such treatment that has gained popularity in recent years is wheatgrass juice.
What is Wheatgrass Juice?
Wheatgrass juice is made from the young shoots of the wheat plant, Triticum aestivum. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and is often taken for its health benefits. Wheatgrass juice can be consumed as a shot or added to smoothies and other drinks.
Can Wheatgrass Juice Soothe Psoriasis?
While there is no cure for psoriasis, it is believed that wheatgrass juice can help manage symptoms and improve skin health. Wheatgrass juice can help reduce inflammation, detoxify the body, and boost the immune system.
There is evidence to support the use of wheatgrass juice for psoriasis. A small study published in the Journal of the Pakistan Association of Dermatologists found that applying wheatgrass juice topically to psoriasis lesions reduced redness, scaling, and itching in some participants.
Another study published in the Indian Journal of Dermatology found that consuming wheatgrass juice daily for six months improved psoriasis symptoms in some participants.
Wheatgrass has high levels of chlorophyll which helps cleanse toxins from our gut to support and repair our skin health, leading to clearer, less congested skin. It is also high in antioxidants which fight free radicals to prevent damage and reduce oxidative stress on the skin
Research has LSO shown that turmeric can significantly reduce symptoms of those suffering from psoriasis.
Its antioxidant anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-carcinogenic properties may decrease the oxidative stress related to skin lesions.
It also appears to inhibit the production of substances known as cytokines, that can lead to inflammation.
